Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal Singles

Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal Singles

I love Fall. It’s my favorite season. Fall to me means walking in cool, crisp air while leaves crunch under your feet. It means orange and yellow and red in the trees and the beginning of comfort food season. It means football and blue jeans and apple picking and pumpkin carving. It’s also the season of two of my favorite flavors: apple and pumpkin. Expect to see lots of recipes using one or the other (or both!) over the next couple months.

Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal Singles

Since I went apple picking last weekend, I have a ton of apples ready to go for recipes. I thought it would be fun to also incorporate the applesauce I made earlier this week into something new. Then I also realized that Fall makes me crave warm, hearty breakfasts and that these Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal Singles were the perfect fit. If you’ve been following my blog for a while you probably already know I love baked oatmeal. It’s kind of like having healthy cake for breakfast, and who doesn’t want that? You can easily make this in a baking dish if you prefer but I love the grab and go convenience of making it in muffin tins. The apples and cinnamon give these oatmeal singles a super comforting, tasty Fall flavor (kind of like individual apple cinnamon oat cakes). You can eat them cold, room temperature or reheated for a few seconds in the microwave – the choice is yours! This is a Fall breakfast pretty much everyone can get behind.

  1. Does it matter if the oats are regular or quick cooking

  2. Wow what a yummy looking these, I love your great experiment , I know my father liked it so much because he loved muffins and cake as wel,as a profession I am also a Cake Designer and i love baking, thanks for sharing this

  3. I tried to make something similar recently and they came out fairly dense. Is there anyway to add some air into them?

    • Hi Kerry! Without knowing anything about the recipe you made it’s hard for me to comment, but baked oatmeal has a different, heartier texture than muffins. It’s not made with flour so it’s naturally going to seem dense if that’s what you’re comparing it to. While baked oatmeal is dense, it should still be moist and I believe all my recipes for it are. If you want more of a cake-like texture maybe you’d prefer to make muffins? A lot of people also pour warm milk over their baked oatmeal before eating. Let me know what you think if you try this recipe!

  4. I love baked oatmeal have only baked it in an 8×8 pan. I love the idea of using muffin pans. I top mine with yogurt. Thanks for sharing your recipe Emily, i’m sure we’ll enjoy this very much

  5. Made these this morning, they were delicious. Thanks for a great recipe. Did you let these cool in the pan for a certain amount of time before removing?Thanks, Cyndi

  6. This recipe is delicious. I made the first dozen and they were gone in no time. My husband loves them. What a great idea for an on the go breakfast. I can’t wait to make more. Thanks, DS

  7. I tries using pumpkin in place of applesauce and it was really good. Thanks Emily for all your delicious recipes.

  8. Just wondering how long you think these last? Do they freeze well? Just curious because I live by myself…and while I can definitely half the recipe, it would be nice to make an entire batch and freeze some of them for a quick grab-and-go breakfast.
    Thanks!

  10. Emily, have you ever used almond milk for this recipe?

  11. Hi Emily,

    Like Miranda, just wondering if these are freezable?

  12. To Jo and Miranda, I make a double batch of these and freeze them all the time! They reheat beautifully, about a minute for two muffins. This is a timesaving breakfast recipe! Thanks Emily.

  13. Danielle: And I also only use unsweetened almond milk. It lowers the PP+ value to 4 for two muffins!

  14. Emily–these look yummy- ,I would prefer to make this in a baking dish ..what size would you suggest ? same temperature ?? same cooking time ??? any/all suggestions appreciated !! thanks

    • I’ve never made them in a baking dish, but I would guess an 8×8 or 7×11 would work. You may have to bake it longer, I would just suggest trying it for the time the recipe states and then go from there.

  15. Hey Emily! Is there anything I can use to replace the applesauce? I want to make these but don’t have any!

    • I’ve used yogurt or mashed banana in some of my other baked oatmeal single recipes. Obviously that would change the flavor, but it might still be yummy!

  16. I made these this moening and they were amazing! So glad I found your site!!

  17. I made these this morning and they were amazing! So glad I found your site!!

  18. I am starting back with SmartPoints after a couple of year hiatus (got married, had a kid) and I am so glad I found this site! I love these oatmeal bites. I can eat them in the car on the way to work and they’re pretty tasty and curb the fat food breakfast craving. I can’t wait to try more recipes 🙂

  19. I will try these tomorrow. Have only made single portion with banana and a date before and ate it right from the oven. These will be a timesaver. Have you ever heated them before eating? Thanks.

  20. I am making this recipe for the fourth time. I love it. I keep the “muffins” in the fridge and pull them out when I don’t have time for breakfast or need a snack. I love to warm them up and have them with coffee. Thanks so much for the tasty and practical recipe.

  21. Have you tried them without the brown sugar? Would love to add the pumpkin along with the applesauce but not sure if it would work. Thanks

    • I’m a little confused by your comment…I don’t think pumpkin would be a swap for brown sugar. Am I misunderstanding? I definitely haven’t tried them without sweetener but if you’re adding pumpkin to the apple ones I would reduce the apple sauce.

  22. I was wondering if there is a healthy option for the born sugar and if anyone has tried an egg substitute such as banana or apple sauce?

  23. I made these this weekend and my 7 year old son and I LOVE them! I promised him we’d try the blueberry ones this next!

  24. How long wold you bake these for if you did it in a casserole instead of individual muffins? Thanks! Sounds delicious!

    • Hi Allison,
      I’ve never baked them in a casserole dish before (I prefer to make them into muffins) so I really can’t say for sure. I’d suggest putting it in for the time listed to start and then checking on it every few minutes after that.

  25. These look delicious. Just curious… could these be made with unsweetened vanilla almond milk in place of skim?

    • Hi Claudia, I have never cooked with almond milk before so I really can’t say for sure. Sorry!

  26. These are a staple in my house. I sub in unsweetened almond milk and Truvia brown sugar, and sometimes a ripe banana in place of some of the apple sauce to lighten it to 2 Smart Points. They freeze well, so I always make double batches.

  27. hi Emily! These look delish.

    Silly question– when you say 1 egg white and 1 egg, this is one full egg and just the egg white of second egg correct?

    Just because I am curious, not sure if you’ve done this, if I were to use all whites (egg whites) what would be the amount you suggest?

  28. Hi I’m excited to make but the WW app says it’s actually 4SP. I love the idea of quick easy breakfast!
    Thank you.

    • Hi Lyra, I think this question from my FAQs can help you!

      I ran the nutrition information you posted through my points calculator and it doesn’t match the SmartPoints value you listed for the recipe – which one is right?
      One of the changes Weight Watchers made in the switch to SmartPoints is that the recipe builder no longer counts the values of 0 SP fruits and vegetables when determining the final SP value for a recipe. Therefore, the SPs you get from the recipe builder may not match the SPs you get from running the nutrition information through the Weight Watchers SP calculator, because the nutrition information will contain the calories, etc from the fruits and vegetables.

  29. I plugged the nutritional values in for these to track them on my WW app and it says they are 4 SP per and 7 for two?

  30. Are these mini muffins or regular size muffins

  31. CAN U USE STEEL CUT OATS INSTEAD?

  32. Oh my gosh I wish I had found this site a long time ago. I made these and they absolutely phenomenal! I have this saved in Pinterest and I deleted all the other recipes like this one and will only make this one. My next try is the Blueberry ones.

  33. I made these for the first time this morning. I decided to add 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts, for a little protein, even expecting it to up the points. I was happily surprised when I put it into the recipe builder on WW that it didn’t go up any points! I also upped the apples to a full cup. They were delicious! Even my husband loves them! Adding this to my regular breakfast menu! I love that I can freeze them to grab for a quick breakfast.
